Re: Viena and Windows 10

Kenneth, I can't help thinking that the Purge problem is created by what I am doing AHEAD of the Purge - namely importing new samples and reassigning them to existing splits. I don't know anything about the mechanics of what Viena does except I do realise that its end result is to produce a text fil...

Re: Viena and Windows 10

Kenneth, Late last year I finished what amounted to several years of making soundfont (.sf2) files, all by using various versions of Viena, as they were released. I say, "finished", because I finally achieved results which gave me full satisfaction. For 60 years I have been looking for a pipe organ ...

Re: Viena 0.999 Purge Problem

Kenneth,

I have just now seen your further replies, and have downloaded Viena 1000B.rar, and should be able to give a report in a day or so.

Viena 0.999 Purge Problem

Kenneth, I am back to making samples and a new soundfont, and I'm afraid I have to report that Viena 0.999 is sometimes (not always) corrupting the samples after purging and then saving. It's not a consistent behaviour. It's just like what was happening with some of its recent predecessors. I have t...

Re: Questions about VSTSynthFont

Kenneth, My question is related to the total of all the samples and any "overhead" content. jOrgan people think that Fluidsynth has a limit of 600 MB. Is there a ball-park figure for what total size we should not exceed when using VSTSynthFont? Does this figure reduce if a number of instances are in...

Re: Questions about VSTSynthFont

Kenneth,

Another question. What sort of limit is there on the size of soundfonts when used with VSTSynthFont?

Re: Edited Instruments Splits in Viena, now all samples are broken

Kenneth, I now find that my previous post needs substantial qualification. Having exited Viena 0.996G, I then had reason to re-open it, and it presented me with the "corrupted" version of the soundfont as reported in my post. However, I now found that it was in fact NOT corrupted. So one needs to cl...

Re: Edited Instruments Splits in Viena, now all samples are broken

Kenneth, I am very sorry to report that virtually having reached the end of making my current fairly large (for me) soundfont - about 120 MB, on the final Purge and then Save, corruption of the samples seemed to occur. Fortunately I was careful with backups, so no harm was done. I then used Viena 0....
